In Reply to: 10 spoke, contour, and forged alloy, differences? posted by Kun on April 19, 1999 at 23:17:53:
Here's what I gathered from my search...
10-spoke - prone to pothole damage and a bitch to clean. about 23 lbs.
Contours - stronger than the 10-spoke and easier to clean. Most people like these the best. About 23 lbs.
Forged (what I have) - The strongest factory wheel but still a bitch to clean (not as much as the 10-spoke) About 20 lbs.
Hope this helps.
